A UK BASED FAMILY & LIFESTYLE BLOG

I like the quote, "The bad news is that time flies, but the good news is that you're the pilot."

Time is something that seems to be, at this stage of my life, always on my mind. Life feels like it sped up after I became a Mum and then again when I became a Mum of two. It also feels faster I think because I work for myself at home, plus I'm pretty sure that having instant access to the Internet wherever I am in the world means that I feel like it's easier to lose time browsing, especially over on social media (an inevitable trap really considering a lot of what I do with my blog and my YouTube channel is also social media based). 

I've found that juggling things as a Mum is not only physically tough and also emotionally sometimes too (Hello Mum guilt!), but it can be so hard to manage time also. I know that I've spent a good chunk of time, feeling like there really isn't enough time in the day, or wishing that I could somehow stay up and awake at night just so that I could get everything I need to do done ready for a fresh start the next day.

And whilst staying awake all night and all day isn't really possible and whilst no day is ever the same and some days I feel like it's all going a bit wrong and I've been ridiculously unproductive, I am finding that some little changes are starting to help me manage my time better and help me *try* to keep on top of things. And so I thought I would share some of the changes that I've made which have been helping..
